About the Author

Gerard T. Lombardo, M.D., is the founder and director of the Sleep Center at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, and assistant professor of Medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell Medical Center. He lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.


"A healthy existence is a 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week concern"; "good sleep hygiene is one of the keys to a healthy state." These are the cornerstone principles of this readable and entertaining volume by Lombardo (chief, pulmonary critical care & sleep medicine, New York Methodist Hosp.). He explains the sleep cycle and details specific conditions that include narcolepsy, sleep apnea, and insomnia. For each condition, there is an accompanying description, an explanation of who is affected and how, and background material on traditional drug and behavioral therapy treatments. Noteworthy is the expert use of analogies to illustrate complex concepts. Highlights include the use of current research data, a bibliography, the web site resource list, and blank forms that readers can use as sleep diaries. Where appropriate, the book is illustrated with graphs, tables, and anatomical drawings. An especially welcome addition to consumer health collections, this title is recommended for all public libraries.
